Man and woman found dead in Parker County as a result of possible murder-suicide

The Parker County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the shooting deaths of two individuals as a possible murder-suicide incident.

Sheriffs deputies responded to reports of shots fired at a home in the 300 block of RT Lane just before 9:00PM Sunday evening. The home is located off FM 51 about 10 miles north of Weatherford.

When deputies arrived, they located two individuals in a grassy area outside of the home. The 60-year-old man and 56-year-old woman were both deceased from gunshot wounds.

Preliminary reports from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner indicate the woman was murdered and the man committed suicide.

“The address shows to have a prior history which is part of the active investigation,” said Danie Huffman, spokesperson for the Sheriff’s Office.

Police have not released any further details, citing an ongoing investigation.
